Re: ECO In MAGMA

Hi I am not sure, but I guess you should give the layers 5 and 6 as forbidden

Re: ECO In MAGMA

Hi,

If you are using the same process (i.e. it is still a M6 process, but you want to use only up to M4), then I suggest that you remove all route and then re-route everything again.

If you are switch to another technology (i.e. a M4 process), than I think you shoul d get the M4 volcano, port the placement to the new process uisng the def interface, and re-route the design. Note that in alot of process the top metal layer has double or higher pitch than the lower metal layer. Also, the macro placement for M6 process might not be suitable for a M4 process.

Regards,
